In one of the Yahoo groups that I belong to, Carol Doak has started a block-of-the-month called Radiant.  The blocks are 12" finished and each block will be paper-pieced using designs created by Carol.  This is a free BOM but you do need to be a member of Carol's Yahoo group called Carol Doak's Quilting Group.  This group is a great group of quilters and I love seeing all the amazing projects and blocks produced by all the members.

This is my June block.  I am learning to work with batiks.  I am finding that batiks are a bit tougher for me to blend with other fabrics.  There is also a connector block  that will go all through the quilt.  I have seen several versions on how to piece the connector block and I am not sure which version I am going to make.  Stay tuned!!

I am glad to see you spread your wings and try some new fabric. I like Batiks in paper pieced patterns with many seams - they press flatter. I absolutely love your setting triangle fabric - so much to expand your center stars.

Your June block is great! I love batiks and have quite a collection now.
